I am so happy for you! :) :)

What a great week - and a great win in the final against Lindsay - someone she'd never beaten before! :) :)



Oct 20th, 2002, 02:03 PM
what was most impressive was how strong she was mentally in the final..

I really thought that losing the set points in the first set and losing that set would get to her, and she would fold in the 2nd set.

But NO! She was sooo strong, and even saved a MP in the 2nd set tiebreaker!!!

There were sooo many BP's she saved today. I am so impressed! I hope she continues to play like this now! Her game is so beautiful to watch. I really hope she keeps on improving so I can see her game on TV more! :) :)

Congrats again Patty! :)

Congrats Patty! Nice to do it in front of the home crowd! :):):)

martinafan : You are ABSOLUTELY right :) What was impressive today is how Patty stayed calm during key moments and how she managed to save quite a few break points :)

I'm in Heaven. Period.

congrats Patty :)

i new someone like her would win it when i saw the speed of the courts ........ slower than clay.

with Smashnova beating Chanda on day 1 things looked fishy and it proved very slow in the end.

they made the courts slow for Hingis but Patty was the one who ended up the conquerer.

either way the Swiss ended up with what they wanted

Congrats Patty! What a good win for her, and in front of her local crowd! :D :)

Thanks tennisfan-mtl.....i just wish i could have seen the match!

I was waiting for the old, mentally-unstable patty to appear ;) lol...and get smashed in the 2nd set....but she was so strong! :)

I am so proud of her! :) :)

ANd to do this in front of her home crowd must make her feel soooo good! :) :)

Congrats again Patty!

Eggy I think it's great that they made the courts slow cuz Americans always make the courts fast for their players. Besides Lindsay lost in Moscow and Filderstadt too on faster courts so it just goes to show that upset can occur on any type of surface. But the slower courts are better IMO cuz the rallies are longer and it's not just about the serve anymore. Also having the Swiss crowd there had to have helped Patty. She really played amazing to beat Bovina, Hantuchova and Davenport in three sets!

:kiss: Well done Patty! :kiss:

Oct 20th, 2002, 02:21 PM
Yes, congrats Patty. :kiss:
I think this time she really outrallied her opponents. And beating Conchi with her own weapons was one point why I expected her to win rhis fi nal. It was the patience not to hit the winner too early.
This will be a mental turbo-booster for her ! Next year's hers. Hopefully ! :D

Oct 20th, 2002, 02:27 PM
Congratulations Patty :)! Now I look forward to watching this match!

Oct 20th, 2002, 02:33 PM
The match was really thrilling and it was so good to see Patty winning in the end. She fought so hard, saved 11 bp and even one match point. She really deserves this title!

Oct 20th, 2002, 02:34 PM
:D GREAT FINAL, GREAT TOURNAMENT....Congrats!!:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

inkyfan, I mentioned sour grapes in another thread that some posters do not like Patty to win the title and say sarcastical things to her. I like Patty a lot, I hope you won't misunderstand my post there.

Oct 20th, 2002, 02:45 PM
Congrats Patty, well done! :D :bounce:

Oct 20th, 2002, 03:18 PM

Didn't get to see the match. :(
I think this win is sssoooooooooooo great.
Taking down the younger guns , and an veteran,
plus Lindsay. I hope the commentators will
stop calling her a "clay players", and start giving
her more respect. I know she's in that area
where her play isn't about power, nor her
serves, but she can return with tons of wit, crafty-

I also want to tell everyone who called Charlston
against Iva Majoli a "freak" road to the final...

"EAT that WTA gold card!!!"

Oct 20th, 2002, 11:12 PM
GOOOO Patty.....all the way back to the top 10 .... I know you can do it (but get a better looking boyfriend babe)

Oct 20th, 2002, 11:37 PM
Congratulations Patty.

You have had a great year.

you were pretty happy not to face Amé ;)

Oct 21st, 2002, 06:04 PM
Everyone needs a bit of luck and Patty got hers when Momo withdrew. All said and done she played an amazing tournament and I'm glad momo didn't have to face patty in that type of form. Congrats again on a great tournament.
